This vintage straw hat was made in the early 1960s. It is a cross between a porkpie and an optimo blocking, with a snap brim. It has a mused brown, blue and yellow puggaree. About an inch and a half of stitching on the braid has dropped at the top of the porkpie crown near the front. It doesn’t show when wearing, and could be fixed easily with several stitches. The hat has a fabric sweatband. It is only marked “Genuine Imported Braid” and “Custom Made”.
